I’ve been on a crafting kick lately. After inheriting a lot of fabric and notions from a cousin who moved to Australia there was a stack of colored felt that begged to become soft baby blocks. They are not hard to make and once you get started, it’s addictive. Thus far, baby has 21 blocks. Two of which are dice made with colorful buttons sewn tight. They are much kinder to fall upon than wooden blocks for the little guy.

How To:

1. Cut squares, each block uses six.

2. Decorate some squares, try ribbon or felt cut-outs.

3. Assemble the cube using embroidery thread to whip stitch the seams.

4. Stuff insides (I used cut up foam wrapped in crunchy plastic) before complete closure.
